William Newton Healthcare Foundation

Enhancing the
Quality of Life in
Our Community.


William Newton Hospital Heritage Society

Throughout its history, William Newton Hospital has been a proactive force in providing healthcare for the area. This is evidenced by six rural health clinics, office facilities for medical staff, occupational health for local industry, and all the other quality inpatient and outpatient services it provides. 

By giving through your will, trust, or IRA, you are helping the hospital stay viable and meet demands to ensure a second century of care. WNH was made possible through the generosity of William Newton who, upon his death in 1923, left considerable assets to the city of Winfield for the construction of a hospital. Newton was a local business owner and harness maker who slowly accumulated wealth from investments and oil on his properties.

Our Goal: 100 Years, 100 Members

The WNH Heritage Society (WNHHS) reached its $1 million challenge goal this fall! The WNH Heritage Committee is actively pursuing gifts toward through wills, estates,

Our next goal is to reach 40 members by February 25, 2022, the 95th anniversary of our hospital's dedication. Stay tuned for news about a Heritage Society celebration. WNH will reach 100 years of service in 2027. To celebrate this milestone, our goal is to reach 100 WNHHS members by 2027.
